Purpose: The Urban Male Conference seeks to promote the path of education as a means to personal and economic success for young males, but with a special emphasis on young urban males of color. While the conference program’s focus highlights the unique perplexities young urban men of color face in education, the program is open to young women and men of all backgrounds.

Goal: Students will leave the conference with a better understanding of the benefits of educational excellence, the values of understanding self-accountability as well as the practical ways to utilize information for the betterment of self and community.

Workshops:

Conference workshops will include:

  • Show Me the Money: The Earning Power of A College Degree
  • Drop-out Cop-out
  • Career Readiness: Selling Yourself vs. Selling Out
  • The Scholar Athlete: Balling Without Boundaries
  • In the MANhood

Registration: Conference attendance is capped at 300. Fill out the online registration form to participate!

Counselors should not fill out the applications for students. There are pre-conference survey questions that require student responses. Conference registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. The online application will close once we have received 300 applicants. The conference fills quickly as the conference approaches. Needless to say, the earlier a student applies, the better the chances to attend. We encourage attendance in groups. Groups should have a chaperone.

For any questions, contact Christopher Hopper, Coordinator of College Now and Collaborative Programs, at 212-650-3549.
